Paint the Town Red!

How do we change attitudes and behaviours around sun protection?

10 Carden is helping paint the town red, in collaboration with Streak for Cancer, Wellington-Duffering-Guelph Public Health, Melanoma Network of Canada, Downtown Guelph, and McNeil.

On August 12th from 11:30 AM – 1:30 PM, St. George’s Square is Streaking for Cancer! The public can support the Melanoma Network of Canada and bring awareness to Melanoma and skin damage by getting a red streak for 10$ (proceeds go to Melanoma Network), as well as get their face painted as a sign of support.

Then, on August 13th from 9:30-11:30 AM, 10 Carden will be hosting the second day of hair streaking with music, coffee & tea, and engaging short video clips to inform folks about skin cancer. Free suncreen will be available, and a representative from Wellington-Dufferin-Guelph Public Health will be on-site to answer questions folks may have.

So come get your hair streaked, learn about Melanoma and skin damage in the process, and take part in a collaborative campaign around the issue!  All ages welcome!
